PHYSICAL DISTANCING

PHYSICAL DISTANCING, WEARING OF MASKS

We are fortunate at Hodson Bay Group that our hotels enjoy spacious ground floor capacity, as well as extensive outdoor space and gardens. Physical distancing in our hotels will be much easier as a result, and in addition to this, we will make the safe accessing of our hotels straightforward through visible and clear signage throughout your stay with us.

STAFF TEMPERATURE CHECKS AND RETURN TO WORK PROTOCOLS

On arrival at work each day, our staff will be temperature checked before each working day. If any member of staff has a temperature of >37.5 degrees, they will be advised to return home, consult their GP if necessary and return to work only if they have no symptoms aligned to Covid 19. Please be assured that our procedures embrace all the current guidelines as advised by the Health Service Executive and the Government Return to Work protocols.

WEARING OF FACEMASKS

The Government says wearing a cloth face covering is recommended in situations where it is difficult to practice social distancing such as in shops or on public transport.
However, the Lancet Journal published a study showing that wearing of face masks decreases the spread of the killer bug by up to six times.
These studies have led Professor Luke O’Neill of Trinity College, to believe that face masks should become mandatory in Ireland.
